The Decor Elements line is easy to remove from walls so that you can place them where you do not want or are not allowed to permanently change the wall (i.e. an apartment or if you are afraid of commitment, LOL). As they are meant to also LAST on the wall as long as you want them to, you will have to tear them to remove them. So unfortunately, you will not be able to use them again. If you want an option to make them reusable, see my post here: http://www.shelleyhopps.com/mocha_memories/2008/08/easy-floating-frame.html Hope this helps, Shelley
